When I vote to close a question as duplicate on Drupal Answers, where I am moderator, I see a dialog box similar to the following one.

Drupal Answers

On Meta Stack Overflow, for example, the dialog box for closing a question as duplicate is slightly different.

Meta Stack Overflow

The difference is that I don't read the number of usages, here on this very site.

What does the number of usages mean?

It's not specific to moderators. The first type of dialog will appear on any question that doesn't yet have any duplicate close votes. –  animuson Feb 16 '13 at 21:24
    
Oh... I was thinking it would be the reputation to make the difference, but clearly it should not. I didn't think of the question not having closing votes. Still, I am not sure to which usages the dialog box is referring. –  kiamlaluno Feb 16 '13 at 21:26

"N usages" here means "This post was used as the duplicate of N closed posts"
